We've set-up the cron for our Mahara site and we're receiving new feedback notifications, forum post alerts and RSS feeds are updating properly.

However under Site Admin the cron status reads 'Cron is not running'.

Below is an extract from our error log, which looks normal to me. 

I'm thinking the cron status is wrong as everything seems to be running ok.

We're running Mahara 1.5.3

Can any-one confirm this is a normal cron error log please?

Hello Mike,

When it says "Cron is not running" it can also mean that certain parts of cron are not running. It doesn't mean that your entire cron doesn't run. I'm afraid though that I can't tell you which cron jobs you are missing. My guess would be the line about skipping a long-running cron job.
